Coming off a weekend visit to Knoxville, Tennessee has emerged as the leader for Louisiana cornerback Eddie Smith. He recently admitted that immediately after his official visit to Rocky Top ended.
While Tennessee left quite the impression on the Pelican State native, it appears Jeremy Pruitt and his staff did the same with his mother — which is often the most important person to please in the recruiting process.
A former TCU commit, Smith still has offer options to consider before National Signing Day, as he has official visits on the books to Starkville and Tuscaloosa coming up over the next two weeks.

Especially if mom is on board with Vol Nation.
